Hi I’m Amanda. Some know me as Second Sunday Amanda because I started attending Faithful Word Baptist Church on the second Sunday since the church started. The first service of FWBC was on Sunday, Christmas Day 2005. It was my New Years Resolution for 2006 to start going to church, which was the second Sunday service of FWBC. That resolution was by far the best and most life changing decision I have made to date. If you are not a Christian, I encourage you to watch this quick video on what the Bible teaches about salvation.
Before visiting FWBC I was saved but not at all living for the Lord as I should’ve. If this is you right now, I want to encourage you to jump in! My life has been greatly blessed in so many ways since I started getting right with God. I’m not saying your life will be perfect and I’m not perfect by any means. There are always challenges in life and I make mistakes every day but want to strive to do right. There is just an overall peace that comes with serving God. The next clip is from a sermon Pastor Anderson preached where he was recalling our first conversation on that New Years Day 2006. After Pastor Anderson had asked me about salvation and understood I was a believer, I then asked him what God’s will for my life was. This was his response. And you know what? If you are a Christian, this is your purpose too. Just replace my name with yours. Listen and be encouraged.
Philippians 3:13 & 14
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
I love spending time with my family & friends, going to church and soul winning. Making clean & healthy meals for my family is important to me and I love trying new recipes and kitchen gadgets. Might as well have some fun in the kitchen since we spend so much time in there right ladies? I also enjoy reading books and blogs on health, natural living and various How To & self improvement books.
And I bet you didn’t know that I’m a swimsuit model! The Cute & Covered swim dresses are absolutely gorgeous, comfortable & modest as you can see pictured. Ladies you have to get one for yourself and your daughters!
You can read more about me in my 1st post Let Me Start From the Beginning.
My vision for the blog is to offer tried and true recipes and to be an encouragement to ladies who also want to follow God’s plan for our lives. In the future I’m also going to be offering various kitchen items with Proverbs 15:17 as a fun way to keep this verse in remembrance & a prime focus in our lives.
Thank you for stopping by. Please follow me on my blog & stay in touch. I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
